People climbed on newspaper kiosks and bus stops in the area to wave flags while the Marseillaise national anthem rang out and cars honked their horns following the final whistle.

Windows were smashed and shops were looted, with similar scenes of unrest occurring in the cities of Lyon and Marseille.

Here are the players of France getting their medals, while greeting Putin, FIFA president Gianni Infantino, French president Emmanuel Macron and Croatia president Kolinda Grabar-Kitarovic.

Cops were forced to break out the tear gas and water cannons in attempts to get the mobs of people under control and the Champs Elysees was still locked down earlier this morning. A club in the poor suburb where 19-year-old star Kylian Mbappe grew up is among them.

"There are two things that matter - one is that these 23 players are now together for life, whatever happens, and also that from now on they will not be the same again, because they are world champions", he said. "It's phenomenal, just phenomenal".

Security forces kept a distance. In some small way, the World Cup has helped lift the nation as it remains wary of the threat.

Millions of fans in France celebrated into the night, honking auto horns and flying the tricolour flag while the Eiffel Tower and the Arc de Triomphe were lit up in the national colours of blue, white and red.

France has suffered years of tension since a series of attacks by Islamist gunmen during 2015 that left more than 140 dead.

As the heavens opened in Russian Federation and torrential rain lashed down upon the triumphant French team, millions took to the streets of Paris in celebration.

"It's awesome", said Brioche Pasquier, 57, a supporter inside the Luzhniki Stadium for the match.

Read on to relive all of the key moments in France's incredible 2018 World Cup win.

Despite the deluge of rain that struck Moscow right after the game ended, fans danced and sang in the streets and a fireworks display could not be snuffed out.

It's the players, though, who have captured the French imagination, a mostly youthful, diverse group that represents a generation which traditionalists have yet to come to terms with.

"It is really lovely". Observers made note of the youth of the team, as well as how many players are of central and North African heritage.

"We also scored four goals".
